What to Expect in a Residential Transaction (Sellers)

You should select a professional real estate agent to represent your needs. Once you establish a working relationship with your agent, your home is put on the market and marketed to potential buyers. Once a buyer makes an offer on your home you have three options: accept the offer, counter the offer, or reject the offer. After you accept an offer you can expect to do the following:

Escrow is opened and buyer deposits "earnest money" into escrow;
Seller submits documents and information to escrow holder, such as:
addresses of lien holders;

Property Owner's Association Information and Documents;

Existing Survey and T-47 affidavit swearing to no change in property since survey;
tax receipts;
home warranty contracts;
any leases and/or rental agreements;
Seller approves and signs the escrow instructions, warranty deed and other related documents required to complete the transaction;
Seller orders inspections, receives clearances and approves final reports and/or repairs to the property as required by the terms of the purchase and sale agreement (responsibility for inspection procedures may vary);
Buyer and Seller fulfill any remaining conditions specified in the contract and escrow instructions; approves the pay off demands and beneficiary's statements;
Buyer and Seller approve any final changes by signing amendments to the escrow instructions or contract;
Note: The above is general information only. Your situation may differ. Please consult your real estate professional for details about your specific situation.
